This week, we have a very special animated Concept Art Writing Prompt, which combines a real New Jersey ruin with a pack of strange, gargantuan creatures. Can you spin a story inspired by this scene?


Artist Kevin Weir transforms photographs from the US Library of Congress into weird and sometimes frightening animated GIFs. You can check out all of his GIFs at his blog Flux Machine—as well as high-resolution versions of some particularly stunning ones over at Colossal.


Weir has kindly permitted us to use one of his GIFs for this week's writing prompt, and the animation is giving us the creeps. If this inspires you to write a story—spooky or otherwise—please post it in the comments.
